Idli Manchurian

Last Updated on

When we prepared suji’s idli which is very healthy and low cal. Food,
it’s my favourite and never says No to this. We can make so many new recipes or
tasty snacks with leftover idli’s i.e. masala idli, fried idli, idli sandwich,
so many variations. Here is one which I’m trying today which called “Idli Manchurian”.

Semolina is simply a form of ground hard wheat called durum
wheat.  It is often used to make pastas and to thicken stews. 
Semolina is very high in protein making it an ideal substitute to flour,
especially for vegetarians.  Semolina is said to have a low glycaemic
index, meaning that it is digested and absorbed at a slower rate in the stomach
and intestines than white flour.  This characteristic is of a particular
importance for those wanting to reduce their weight as well as for diabetics
striving towards better blood sugar control.  Slower digestion and
absorption helps to prevent rapid fluctuations in blood glucose levels. (From
